Widget Slider - Frontpage Slide Show.


This is based on the demo above. OK this is my first mod and I know the coding really sucks! But I thought I would get this out and see if anyone want to improve on it.
This is one of those frontpage slide shows that pulls your attachment and data from specified forums.

I hope this works for you.


Edit slider.php and at line 100:

$forumid - set the forum to pull slides
$limit - set the number of posts
$chars - set the total number of characters
$words - set total number of words

Upload Files.

Create PHP Widget and inser the following code:

echo '<div>';
echo '<center>';
require_once './clientscript/slider/slider.php';
echo '</center>';
echo '</div>';

Hi. Can anyone help me with A to Z about how to install it on my main FORUMHOME page. I want the slider for all posts, not just one forum. Please help me.

Put allot of work into this, by reading all the info the good Dr. Posted. I have a question is it possible to make the slider work with varying resolutions.

Example in 1900x resolution it looks great nestled in the left or right column. But once I got to 1024x768 its to big, and all the elements get pushed away.

I have the frontpage slideshow on my site. Which is a stand alone thing product that was actually made for Joomla. Have it for months and done lots of tweaking to it. It's not an easy simple thing to make work with VB. If this thing does what the demo shows above it would be a nice thing for VB users but I suspect this is a complicated process.

If anyone at VB is paying attention, this would be a great feature to have built into the CMS!!

While I am no coder if you PM me maybe I can offer some help or at least advice.
I am going to try this on my test site and will report back.

I've had it running for a while. Works great once I got it all formatted the way I needed it.

Hi guys - I was doing some vB upgrades today, and now my slider isn't functioning properly. The error Firefox gives me is

Error: $("#featured > ul") is null

Wondering if anyone else has experienced this?

Don't forget to edit lines 20 to 23 to fit your needs.

add a new php module --> name what ever you want too --> File to Include slidermodule.php

---> Use Module Wrapper Template up to you. enjoy
Could you make this module available at vBadvanced please?

This is a great Mod!
But... it's not quite working lol.

Apparently the one forum I want to show, won't, and these are the news oriented posts that get promoted to articles; and if I try another forum like sports, it's showing the first four articles in that category, as in from 2006. Odd.
